ABOUT THE FUND
The North Bay Fire Relief Fund (NBFRF), established by the Redwood Credit Union Community Fund (RCUCF), in partnership with Redwood Credit Union, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire, is focused on relief efforts for those affected by the fires in the North Bay. A fund advisory committee has been established and will ensure that there is a process to determine unmet immediate needs in the counties of Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma.
A grants committee will accept applications for funding from nonprofit organizations, review applications and make recommendations for funding to the fund advisory committee. The RCUCF Board of Directors approves grant requests. RCUCF will oversee and administer the grant distribution process.
The Redwood Credit Union Community Fund is a public charitable organization focused on overall wellness to include but not limited to; financial wellness and literacy, individual and/or organizational wellness and safety and emergency relief for those in need or crisis.
Established on September 14, 2015 in response to the Valley Fires in Lake County, CA, the RCUCF has supported the community in both disaster relief and financial literacy and wellness, including free financial seminars, financial education to local schools and support of those non-profits focused on financial and community wellness.
